Microneedling can rejuvenate your skin by improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and large pores while boosting skin elasticity. After applying a topical anesthetic, tiny needles draw a small amount of blood from just under the skin. The natural healing cells from this sample are then reapplied to the skin, inducing rejuvenation and other skin health improvements.
Why Should I Consider Microneedling ?
Skin naturally loses elasticity and firmness during the aging process. Fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven tone result from a decrease in collagen and elastin production and exposure to toxins and the sun’s UV rays.
Microdermal needling procedures, like microneedling, help treat skin concerns, reverse skin damage and revitalize aging skin. Also known as microneedling, these innovative technologies make for an improved appearance in a shorter recovery time.
How Does Microneedling Work?
The microneedling procedure uses an array of micro-fine, stainless steel needles to make small pin-pricks in the skin’s surface. Although the tiny needles only pierce the skin at the surface level, they work to stimulate new collagen production. Microneedling yields remarkable results while being a quick, non-invasive procedure lasting roughly one hour.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated material that accelerates the healing process in a procedure. Taken from a standard blood draw, PRP contains natural growth factors and unique healing abilities. IntraSpin™, a medical centrifuge device, slowly spins your drawn blood – separating the white blood cells from the platelets that form PRP. The PRP can then be placed directly on the micro-needled area to promote healing. When PRP is reintroduced at the site of your procedure, it becomes a natural healing source by releasing powerful restorative proteins in the area.
What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling And PRP?
As discussed above, microneedling and PRP enhance and accelerate the healing process while lowering the skin’s recovery time after the microneedling procedure. After the microneedling and PRP, you may notice:
A decrease in wrinkles and fine lines
Diminished appearance of sunspots and freckles
Glowing and radiant skin
Decreased scarring for trauma, acne, or surgery
Increased evenness in skin tone and texture
More volume in areas like the cheeks
What Else Should I Know About Microneedling And PRP?
Some patients experience infection, bruising, or peeling at the site of this procedure. It’s recommended you avoid this procedure if you are pregnant or receiving radiation therapy. This procedure is not recommended for those suffering from eczema, psoriasis, open wounds, or have a history of scarring. Refrain from taking ibuprofen, topical retinoids, acne medication, or weakening makeup before this procedure.
Details On Botox
Botox is a non-surgical procedure that improves wrinkles and fine lines while freezing the facial muscles for up to three months. This makes for an excellent add-on cosmetic service during your regular dental visit.
With continued Botox treatment, your facial muscles become trained to relax and reduce the pain associated with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ). Following repeated Botox treatments, patients have been known to decrease their tendency to grind their teeth or clench their jaw – key causes of TMJ.
